Richard Evans, RichCraft - furniture designer maker
In June 2017 he returned to a practice he loved - making. Acting on his long-held aspiration he established RichCraft, his own furniture making practice.
Richard's work incorporates contemporary design with traditional materials and making techniques. He draws on inspiration from architectural structures and the built environment. Not afraid to use bold colours in his work, he successfully manages to combine metal with traditional hardwoods. Richard sources his timber locally with the majority of coming from trees felled in London.
